Ecumenical

Community

Church

We are a people-focused Community Church within a reformed tradition. We are progressive but Gospel-led Christians.  The ECC+C is categorised as  'Free' Church but in full acknowledgement of its inextricable link with the first Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church via the Apostolic Succession.

The ECC+C oversees a number of pastoral and prayerful ministries around England. We believe God reveals Himself to us via Christ's love and not through man-made dogma. We aim to care for the spiritual and emotional  wellbeing of people at their point of need.

We are not 'Parish' Priests in a traditional sense as we manage a number of dedicated and specific chaplaincies and ministries. We also concern ourselves both practically and prayerfully with the health of our planet and every living creature within it.

If you would like to speak to a representative from our church, please call us on 01590 624731.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to the ECC+C

 

As one of the less well known corners of the Reformed Catholic world, we play an important role in helping to provide people who are unchurched (or those who feel disenfranchised from Organised Religion) with a fresh path to Christianity. For years we have aimed to continue the work of the Apostles by transforming lives through the Gospel by how we communicate with people - and not what we preach to them. We share with every single church in the world, a  universal 'Catholic' history and bring together Reformed Catholics, Lutherans and other Protestant (Open and Free) traditions. We are committed towards meeting the pastoral and spiritual needs of our local communites to the best of our abilities.

 

New Forest Franciscans Christmas Campaign

The New Forest Franciscans are a tertiary order of Franciscans within the Ecumenical Community Church. Our ministry involves helping all of God's creation wherever possible. This year, our Christmas appeal is for the sponsorship of rescued Turkeys. We have friendships with various animal rescue organisations throughout the UK and try to do a little to help each of them where we can. One of these rescue organisations, Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary, has an opportunity to rescue turkeys from slaughter.

New Forest Franciscans have sponsored the rescue of a turkey. Why not join us in supporting this rescue mission? It's not often that you get the opportunity to save a life so directly - at a cost of just £25.

The Christmas Turkey rescue was a great success. Here is Frances, the turkey we sponsored the rescue of, named after our patron! We love you Frances!
